World Superbike: Sylvain Guintoli Tops Day One Of Season Opener

Sylvain Guintoli throws down a 1:30.865 to end day one of 2016 on top of the World Superbike class.

Sometimes the anticipation of a new season can be over hyped, but so far that does not seem to be the case of World Superbike 2016. The top 11 were within a second of the leader, and the leader was Sylvain Guintoli on the Pata Yamaha in its first outing.

Many were wondering how the Yamaha would fare in its early stages of development in the World Championship, well, so far so good. The Frenchman laid down a flyer, a 1:30.865, the first to drop into the 1:30’s, including the two-day test leading up to the season opener.

Also making a good first impression at the start of 2016 was Honda World Superbike Team’s Michael van der Mark, who ended day one with second-place honors, besting the dominant Kawasaki Racing duo – Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes, finishing third and fourth, respectively.

Another surprise was the top Italian bike finisher: MV Agusta Reparto Corse’s Leon Camier. The Brit laid down his best time of the week to end the day fifth, finishing ahead of American Nicky Hayden on the other Honda.

The Ducatis followed – Davide Giugliano in seventh and Chaz Davies in eighth. IodaRacing Team Aprilia’s Lorenzo Savadori was ninth and making the final cut into Superpole 2 was Althea BMW’s Markus Reiterberger.

The young Dutchman, Michael van der Mark, continues to impress.
